Reviews

Peggy Mount and David Kossoff star as Ada and Alf Larkin in this big screen version of the hugely popular 1950s TV comedy. Alf Larkin has finally made good his dream to own a pub. The trouble is, it's got no customers. But leave it to the Larkins to find unorthodox ways to bring in the punters.

My family and I watched this film a couple of days ago and we're still laughing at the antics of the Larkins. The script is brilliant, the characterisation excellent and the acting is superb. In fact we liked the Larkins so much we've ordered the four TV series DVD's currently available.

This film is great for a family entertainment evening and one that you can watch again and again and again and still be laughing.

I would also recommend Peggy Mount in the film "Ladies who Do" and the TV series "You're only young Twice."

For all the B&W post war film comedy addicts, this is pure gold, lots of stars of the time. Excellent sound and quality. The story of a family moving to a run down pub and making it a sucess, with the local Lord of the manor brewing beer all the locals wanted. The pub is situated in a spot where a motorway is due to be built, the fight of the giants to buy it. the silly son playing at scouting and his mate Billy Bunter (as was). Good all round comedy for the purist

I gambled on buying this film solely on the basis of being a Peggy Mount fan. I wasn't disappointed, what a comedy masterpiece! I am certainly going to buy the series it came from now!

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
In these days where alcohol has taken over from tobacco as the ultimate evil that is causing all the problems in Britain, to sit and watch a film that has, shock horror, a DRINKING CONTEST at one point makes this film seem very dated. But that is in no way a criticism, as this is one of the most enjoyable films I have watched for some time.

Peggy Mount steals the show all ends up with her firey and formidable matriarchal performance; and David Kossoff manages to appear hen-pecked, but not enough to annoy, if that makes any sense. A very understated Leslie Phillips tots up barely 10 minutes of screentime, which is something of a relief as in other films he has tended to be over-used, it seems, mainly to get as much of him as is possible. The same goes for Charlie Hawtrey, who admirably plays the part of a belligerent rat-bag which is totally at odds with the characters he was making so famous in the Carry Ons from that time - a testament to his sadly under-used acting talent.

The film never drags, never confuses or dithers along with any sub-plots. It is, purely and simply, a well written, superbly acted, and yes, actually quite laugh out loud funny in places, comedy which you really should buy right away.

But remember all of you - drinking is bad, so don't so it!

GREATTO SEE THE lARKINS AGAIN.
Peggy Mount as Ada - wonderful
It even has great appeal in black & white.
If only there were some of the Larkins TV programmes left.

Wonderful. Classic first class British comedy at its best.
The acting from all players is second to none.
With Peggy Mount and David Kossoff heading the cast it can not go wrong and it does not.
Brilliant reproduction.
If you want a bit of hilarious nostalgia them buy this, you will not be disappointed.
Why do we not make films like this anymore? RJC.

If you are nostalgic about the fifties and have nothing to do on a Sunday afternoon then you will enjoy this classic British comedy. Your children will think you are mad but when they see the old cars, streets ,clothes, etc they will be hooked if a little bemused!
